<p><img width="104" height="146" align="left" src="https://i.imgur.com/5RAok90.jpg"v:shapes="_x0000_s1026"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">Ajay Toor, of Surrey, Canada, a professional truck

driver for Bison Transport of Winnipeg, Manitoba, has been named a Highway

Angel by the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA). He is being recognized for

assisting a fellow truck driver who was hit by a passing vehicle.</span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;"> On September 5, 2016, Ajay was on his way to Langley

when he saw lights flashing in the distance. As he approached the lights, he

found that they were the flashers of a stopped car belonging to a young

couple, who were standing near an injured truck driver. He was lying on the

road with a flash light in his hand. Ajay quickly pulled over and approached

the scene to assess the situation and offer assistance.</span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;"> </span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">Ajay was informed that the truck driver had been crossing

the road when a passing vehicle struck him and drove away. The driver

expressed that he was cold, so Ajay quickly retrieved a blanket and a first

aid kit from his truck. The young couple had already called emergency medical

services. Despite the coverage of Ajay's blanket, the driver said he was

still unable to bear the cold, and that he had a warmer blanket in his own

truck; however, the driver’s keys were missing.</span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;"> </span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">With the driver’s permission, Ajay broke the victim's

truck window and retrieved another blanket. Ajay not only waited with the

victim until police and EMS arrived at scene, but he also assisted the

injured man onto the stretcher; his leg and thigh appeared to be

fractured. </span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;"> </span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">For his willingness to assist his fellow driver, TCA has

presented Ajay with a certificate, patches, lapel pin, and truck decals.

Bison Transport also received a certificate acknowledging Ajay Toor as a

Highway Angel.</span></p>

<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; font-size: 11.5pt;">EpicVue sponsors TCA’s Highway Angel program. Since the

program’s inception in August 1997, hundreds of drivers have been recognized

as Highway Angels for the exemplary kindness, courtesy, and courage they have

displayed while on the job.</span></p>
